Prologue: The Tales of Our Fathers

This is but one of the legends the people speak...

Long ago, there existed a kingdom, where a golden power lay hidden. It was a prosperous land, blessed with green forests, tall mountains, and more importantly..

Peace.

But one day, an evil man took the golden power for himself... And with it's strength at his command, he spread darkness across the kingdom. All hope seemed lost, until, in the final moments...

A boy in green appeared, bearing the blade of evils bane. Fighting the darkness, he sealed it away and gave the land light...

But deep in the darkness, the man was not alone...

In another realm, in another time, a man sought escape from those who had captured him, and locked him away from the world. Unable to escape with his body, he sank into the recesses of his mind until he found the path to another world...

Alone in the darkness, two evils met, and created a bond. One world for the other, one power for the other, they would at last rise up again...

In the lands of the hero where the waters rose high, shadows poured from the other world yet again. Islands and peoples were twisted into demons, and those on neighboring isles prayed to the gods to save them yet again.

In the lands of the elements, two nations were separated from the rest of the world by a wall of shadow... Travelers swept away by cruel creatures of the darkness, never to be seen again... And the symbol of evil hovered in the sky, visible only after the twilight hour...

On a small island to the east of one of these nations... Where it was tradition to fight in clothes of green...

Our real tale begins.

AN - It's only short because the opening of most Zelda games are. :0 *cough* Don't worry, upcoming chapters will be of the usual 2000-4000 word length! (Depending on whether or not they are loaded with dialogue... Which really really takes away from word count, because describing everything with dialogue is kinda weird. ) But in the meantime... I will tell you this. Hero of whatever will not be directly related to Aang. BECAUSE THAT WOULD BE SILLY AND SUE. (Infact, his parents arent' benders AT ALL. *obvious hint is obvious* ) With that I leave you guessing until I finish the first chapter! ....Which is likely today. :|
